Re:APSc to Full Frame

My experience is not 100% what you are asking but very similar. I have Fuji XE1 which is in many ways similar to OMD EM5 and D800E. I sold the D800e to get a Sony A7r as I found the XE1 the goto camera because of its portability and excellent IQ.

The A7r is now my goto camera as its the same D800e sensor but in a small compact body like the XE1 (its actually smaller than the XE1).

There is a noticeable difference in IQ. Better low light high ISO performance, better framing, wider fields, better shallow depth of field and a more pleasing background blur for the same lens.

So based on that the DF would be a big jump.

From your posts it seems you would really like it.
